Well, I appreciate the comments, even if some of you decide to give me some odd cryptic advice. Celie, I'll answer your questions, as they lead into what I wanted to say.
First off, about Brandon, no I have not been around him enough to make much of a judgment, but Shannon tells me he's AMAZING. We've talked a few times and I never got much of a bad vibe from him. I know her word can't always be fact, but I honestly see no harm from the guy.
I have thought about it, really, but he just did not exactly sound like who was on the phone. I just figured, who else but Brandon would be looking for her? However, it could have been a classmate, some random friend... The thing is, Shannon usually tells me fucking EVERYTHING and if there was any friend of her's... I would probably know who he is!
If anyone had been in the house as I slept, they didn't do anything that I fucking noticed. Should I ask Diane if she noticed anything?
The more I think about it, the more it makes sense that Shannon is simply setting me up for some joke, or perhaps she is just hiding something silly. She is usually NEVER like this, avoiding subjects with me and not returning some of my calls. She's almost totally ignoring me even though I'm her fucking best friend! So yes, she is acting a little off, but I wouldn't use the word irritable. Heck, maybe she's just having a bitchy month and figures we need space or some shit.
As for the flu, the only person I know who's had the flu in the last few months is Diane, and she's been uncharacteristically nice lately.
So the only real mysterious thing is either: What is Shannon hiding?
Or: What is Shannon planning?
She probably checks the blog still, sees that I'm posting. So she will probably read this...
Whatever, I'll just keep badgering her about it.
And as for my email... I suppose that was a bit damn harsh, but, really I am still not very comfortable with talking much here. It's nice to see some consistent commentators, really, but I don't feel the need to bother with anything beyond this web page.
I suppose I just need to ease into it more, yes?
